Senegalese American artist Akon showered praises on Black Sherif. He called the Ghanaian superstar the voice of the African continent.

Senegalese American singer Aliaune Damala Badara Akon Thiam known as Akon showered praises on Ghanaian sensation Black sherif. During an interview with BBC 1 xtra he called Blacko the “voice of the African youth”.

During the interview he responded to the question on which African artist does he think is a symbolism of the African continent. He narrated how he stumbled upon Black Sherif’s music.

He said “I am a huge fan of Blavk sherif right now. I think he reminds me of the energy of myself when I came out. I remember that first record. I was in New York City when a friend of mine named Bako from Mali played me the song, I said ‘yo who the F is that?’ Like you can hear in his voice. You can feel the pain, you can feel the struggle, you hear the challenges but you can just hear a ghetto kid just wanting to get out. It’s the way he says it. You know it’s real and it’s not fabricated”.
